Hi, I'm Becky. I'm honored you are considering BEP for your portrait needs. I'm passionate about portraiture and documenting moments. I've lived in 5 countries but England is the place I call home. I moved to the U.S when I was 19 where I got my nursing degree and I am still a practicing RN. I just celebrated 11 years of marriage and two amazing little humans call me Mom! Things that make me happy: the ocean, traveling, laughter, my 3 boys, time with my girlfriends and soft cozy blankets, sweaters and socks!
What made you become a photographer?I have always had a deep passion for photography, especially portraiture and fine art but its not until I lost my older sister and best friend in 2013 to Cancer that I realized my calling to photography. The moment came to me while I stood in a hospital hallway watching a photography duo capture my sister, her husband and two young daughters last family portraits. In that moment I realized what a true gift portraits are.
With time memory fades, but physical prints allow you to capture every detail. A person's smile, a freckle, the emotions of a moment. I knew then I had to take the time to pursue my passion. To be that person who could give invaluable images to other families of loved ones.
Why did you choose to specialize in seniors and head shots?I love working with people one on one and focusing on their individuality. I love the relationships I build with my clients, getting to know them and including their interests and personality into our session. For seniors, they are experiencing such a big year. They are becoming adults and often heading off to college soon. Our session is likely the last professional photography experience they have until their wedding day. Isn't that crazy? I get so excited that I get to document such a pivotal point in someones life. For head shots and personal branding, a headshot is the "new handshake" in a digital era. I love helping clients create powerful, compelling and confident-building images that make their prospective clients, employers and partners want to click connect.
What is the best part of your job?
I believe in authentic beauty and capturing peoples unique qualities. I love empowering women and helping them see their true beauty. The reactions my clients have when they see their beautiful images for the first time. The happiness. The new found confidence.
